Yep, It’s 2014

A pretty disturbing incident from Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

What was purportedly a Halloween display on the front lawn of a residence at Fort Campbell was not surprisingly deemed “offensive in nature” by base officials who requested that the resident remove the display. As you can see in the picture, the display appears to depict an African-American family, with each member being hanged from a tree. The child in the display has a knife in its back.

Fort Campbell Public Affairs officer Brendalyn Carpenter said that it was “her understanding that the display was not intended to be offensive, but authorities deemed it could be interpreted as such. She said the occupant did extend an apology about the decorations.”
